The New Zealand Wars/Ngā Pakanga o Aotearo - book cover

The New Zealand Wars/ Ngā Pakanga o Aotearoa by Vincent O'Malley (Wellington: Bridget Williams Books, 2019)

The New Zealand Wars of the mid-nineteenth century profoundly shaped the course and direction of our nation’s history. Fought between the Crown and various groups of Māori between 1845 and 1872, the wars touched many aspects of life in nineteenth-century New Zealand, even in those regions spared actual fighting. Physical reminders of these conflicts and their aftermath can be found all over the country.

Today interest in the New Zealand Wars is resurgent. Public figures are calling for this significant history to be taught in schools, and a national day of commemoration has been established. Here Vincent O’Malley explores the events, causes and consequences of these defining conflicts.
